Prayer of Ismael
Glory to God in the highest; peace to men on earth! Jesus, good and beloved Master, sustain your humble, sinning brothers in the battles here on earth.
Blessed angel of the Lord, open for us your compassionate embraces; protect us from evil, lift our spirits to the Majesty of your Kingdom, and infuse in all our senses, the light of Your immense Love.
Jesus, through your sublime sacrifice, through your martyrdom on the cross, give those who are bound to the heavy burden of matter, the perfect orientation of the way and virtue, the only one we can find you.
Jesus, peace to them, forgiveness to our enemies and receive in your blessed breast the prayer of the least of your servants.
Blessed Star, Lighthouse of the Immortal "phalanges", purify us with your divine rays; cleanse us of all our guilt; attract us to move close to Your breast, the blessed sanctuary of all love.
If the world, with its errors, passions and hates, strews the path with needles, darkening our horizon with clouds of sin, brighten more with your forgiveness, in order that secure and aided in your message we can overcome the difficulties of the way and reach the dwellings of your kingdom.
Friend - Star - Lighthouse of both sinners and the just, open your divine breast and receive our supplication - for all humanity. Let it be thus.
Prayer of Caritas
God, our Father, who is all power and goodness, give strength to those who go through tribulations; give light to those who seek the truth, and fill the human heart with compassion and charity.
God, give the guiding star to the traveller, consolation to the afflicted, and rest to the sick. Father! Give repentance to the guilty, truth to the spirit, guidance to the child and a father to the orphan.
Lord! May your goodness extend over everything that You have created. Mercy, Lord, to those who do not know You and hope to those who suffer.
May Your goodness allow the consoling spirits to spread peace, hope, and faith everywhere. God! A ray of light and a spark of Your love can inflame the Earth. Let us drink from the fountains of this abundant and infinite goodness, and all tears will be dried, and all pain will be lessened.
A single heart, a single thought will rise to you, like a cry of gratitude and love.
Like Moses on the mountain, we wait for You with open arms oh! Goodness, oh! Beauty, oh! Perfection, we wish in some way to deserve Your mercy.
God! Give us the strength to help progress so we may rise up to You, give us pure charity, give us faith and reason; and give us the simplicity that will make our souls the mirror that will reflect your image.
So it is, and so it will be!
Lord's Prayer in Aramaic
Father-Mother, from whom the breath of life comes,
Source of sound, Wordless Action, Creator of the Cosmos!
Make Your light shine within us, between us and around us so we can make it useful.
Help us follow your path, breathing the only feeling that emanates from You…
May our BEING, on the same pace, be with yours, so we walk like Kings and Queens with all the creatures.
May Your wish together with our wish be a whole one all in light, like in all forms, like in all individual existences, like in all communities…
Make us feel the earth’s soul within us, so we may feel the wisdom that exists in everything. Do not allow that superficial things and the world’s exterior appearances fool us but let us be freed from all that prevents our progress…
Let us not forget that you are The Power and the Glory of The World, The Chant that renews from time to time and embellishes everything.
May Your love be the soil where all of our actions grow.
So be it.
May "all beings" be happy, well and whole;
May "all beings" be healthy and perfect;
May "all beings" have all that they need and desire;
May they be protected from harm, and free from fear;
May "all beings" enjoy inner peace and ease;
May "all beings" be awake, free and without any limitation;
Let none deceive or despise another anywhere;
Let none wish harm to another, in anger or in hate;
May that peace expand into their world and throughout the entire universe;
May all beings of the world be free from suffering;
May all beings find happiness.

Invocation to Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael in front of me,
Archangel Michael behind me,
Archangel Michael on my right side,
Archangel Michael on my left side,
Archangel Michael over my head,
Archangel Michael in my heart,
Archangel Michael beneath my feet.
May He guide me to all the good paths
And wherever I go
The blue light from His sword
Bless me, protect me, guard me, support me
But deliver us from all the evil
Today, tomorrow and for the all lasting days of my life
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.
Prayer to Bezerra de Menezes
We beseech You, Father of Infinite Kindness and Justice, the graces of Jesus Christ, through Bezerra de Menezes and his legions of companions.
May they assist us, Lord, consoling the afflicted, curing those who deserve it, comforting those who have trials and expiations to go through, clarifying those who desire to know the Truth and helping all those who appeal to Your Infinite Love.
Jesus, Divine Bearer of Grace and of Truth, extend Your hands full of gifts in succour of those who recognize You as the Faithful and Prudent Steward; do this, Divine Model, through Your consoling legions, Your Holy Spirits, so that Faith may be elevated, Hope increased, Kindness expanded, and Love may triumph over all things.

The Great InvocationFrom the point of Light within the Mind of God,
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God,
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men.
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the Centre which we call the Race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
So be it!
And always will be.
Because it Is
Prayer of Saint Francis of AssisiLord make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is discord, unity
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is error, truth.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is sadness, joy.
Where there is darkness, light
O Divine Master grant that I may:
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
